Sock Class!

We had our first sock class last Wednesday. I think everyone got at least 1/2 way through their sock. I expect many will have actually finished their sock by the next class. I'm glad I reserved my community room for the class, it was comfortable and had plenty of space for the 5 of us. Everyone agreed the smallest size is most likely sized for a doll, but the medium and large sizes are more for baby sizes. This project is a great use for left over sock yarn bits, I think the medium size takes less than 1/4 ounce per sock. Well here are some pictures from class.

Yesterday I was taking out the trash and found by the dumpster an eliptical exercise machine, I checked it out and the only thing wrong with it was it needed new batteries!!! So I promptly brought it in which was not an easy task, but well worth it. I haven't used it yet, figure I am pretty sore already, but will start using it this week. I need to figure out how to fit it into my apartment.

Have also been trying to organize my fabric for my business, I have an amazing amount of I need more shelves or something. Between the fabric, fiber, yarn and completed items that are for sale, or waiting to be listed for sale, I think I need a bigger apartment. Well maybe someday.

Crazzzzyyyy Days

Went shopping at the mall last night. Just to let everyone know, I avoid the mall like the plaque. But this weekend is Crazy Days, so I decided I needed to check it out and try to get a few deals, I always need work clothes. So I went to old navy first and found tons of great deals, but only 2 pairs of pants that I thought looked decent on me and a cute tan wool coat. One of the pairs of pants there were only 3.99....yup thats right 3.99! And the coat was 19.99! Super Deal.

Then I went to JCPennys. There I actually made a huge haul. Four pairs of pants, one shirt, two sweaters and a cute aqua purse (think very bright). All for about $80! The pants were all about 10 and the tops varied between 7 and 9 and the purse was like 12.

Now I just have to hem all the pants....:0(.....I don't know why it is, I have no problem hemming pants for my coworkers, but really hate doing it for myself.

As for knitting content, I am working up the pattern for my sock knitting class the next 2 Wednesdays. When I get it all typed up and proofed, I will post it. I was hoping to figure out how to make it into a PDF, but I will figure that out later. Oh the pattern is a baby sock pattern in 3 sizes, since I don't have a baby or have ever had a baby, I hope the sizing is realistic....cross your fingers.

Happy New Year!!!!

Happy New Year! I stayed home last night and stayed warm. It's darn cold here, going to be -10 tonight I think the news said.

Today I worked on more knitting bags, check out my shop for bags that are done. I will be adding more this week.

Have a Great New Year!!!
